Complete Surface Disinfection
Personal hygiene measures are the ﬁrst step in preventing the spread of viruses. Next to that, it is important to regularly clean and disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated and thereby act as transmission route. This requires a disinfectant that is able to eﬀectively kill the pathogens.
COVID-19 is an enveloped virus that probably originates from animals and is currently further transmitted between humans. The exact route of transmission is still under investigation. However it is clear that the small water droplets (aerosols) expelled during sneezing and coughing by patients contain virus particles and are a source of infection.
We use Hydrogen Peroxide decontamination and disinfection by fogging. Especially because an important transmission route of the corona virus is airborne aerosols caused by coughing, it is important to disinfect the air in rooms where carriers of the virus have been present.
Covid-19 Cleaning & Decontamination
How we can help?
At Integrated Compliance Services we boast the latest cleaning technologies to ensure we are able to deliver cleaning and decontamination services to the highest level.
Our environmental teams are trained, qualified and experienced.
We follow specific procedures, including establishing a risk assessment
and method statement (RAMS).
Strict decontamination procedures allow us to contain any viral outbreaks quickly and with the least amount of impact across your business.
This also ensures that traces of infection on work place surfaces can be dealt with quickly, thus significantly reducing the chances of onward transmission and cross infection to other staff and also giving great peace of mind to those in the workplace.
Once the environment has been contained we remove all waste safely and dispose it as clinical waste keeping the whole area clean and infection free.
What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?
Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at.
How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?
Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitizers, mold preventatives and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it’s given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.
The main features and benefits of electrostatic spray disinfection include:
- Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods
- Improves infection control and the spread of viruses such as influenza, MRSA, HIV and many others
- Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse
- Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections
For desktops, floors and walls that need to be absolutely spotless, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option. The same goes for equipment and hard to reach places; if a piece of equipment is heavily trafficked, electrostatic spray cleaning in the most comprehensive way to remove germs and dirt.
Is the landlord able to access a property for safety checks?
The contract you make with your tenant should allow you access for any maintenance or safety check work that needs to be done. You must not use force to enter the property. Further information is provided in regulation 39 of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
A landlord has to show that they took all reasonable steps to comply with the law. HSE recommends the following actions and strongly advises that a record be kept of all correspondence with the tenants:
- Leave the tenant a notice stating that an attempt was made to complete the gas safety check and provide your contact details.
- Write to the tenant explaining that a safety check is a legal requirement and that it is for the tenant’s own safety. Give the tenant the opportunity to arrange their own appointment.
HSE inspectors will look for repeated attempts to complete the gas safety check, including the above suggestions; however the approach will need to be appropriate to each circumstance. It would ultimately be for a court to decide if the action taken was reasonable depending upon the individual circumstances.find out more
